"Beer brewed by a Japanese guy in Belgium". Nice dark golden brown color, slightly cloudy, not much head. Mild aroma, malty cereal flavors and a slight sweetness with a caramel finish. Carbonation minimal. Overall nothing stands out, but it has a lot of things I like in a beer without being too heavy.

Beer5000 (5900) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2016
330 ml bottle. Slightly unclear golden body with a big, creamy white head. Light aroma with a hint of caramel. Flavor is light caramel malt, some fruit, low bitterness and slightly spicy yeast. Medium body and short in aftertaste. Nothing wrong, but very plain and straight forward. Nothing exiting at all going on here.

Vignale (3311) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2015
Flaska från beergium. Mahognyfärgag, klar, högt poröst skum som lämnar mycket rester. Maltsyrlig doft med en hel del jäst och degspad. Jästig, lätt maltsyrlig, örtig beska, metall i eftersmak. Inte alls gott, närmast odrickbar.

Ysok02 (985) - MOns, BELGIUM - SEP 7, 2015
Robe ambrée, profonde, peu de mousse. Nez très malté et épicé, touche de caramel. Bouche à l’attaque ample, de la rondeur, de la fraîcheur et une finale équilibrée. Une belle ambrée équilibrée.

ClubGonzo (5416) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange body with tons of small sediments and a medium off-white head. Nose is grains, straw, mild plum tones, hay and hints of vanilla, caramel and golden raisins. Taste is syrup, white raisins, rum, caramel and hints of toffee, dried plums and bitter herbs in the back. Medium, oily body and with a high, near-fizzy carbonation which doesn’t quite work for me. Strange stuff, not really an ale easily categorized but very sweet, light and yet with lots of typical "darker Belgian" flavors. Not too bad, but somehow not too convincing either.
